Injury Update: Sagna Out Three Weeks With Hamstring Issue

Shaun Botterill

The player-a-week injury run that Arsenal's on continues, as Bacary Sagna will miss the West Brom match with a hamstring injury.

Via Arsenal's official Twitter account, the team has announced that first-choice right back Bacary Sagna will miss tomorrow's West Brom match -- and the upcoming international match for France Oct. 15 vs. Finland, as well as Arsenal's Champions League faceoff against Borussia Dortmund at the Emirates Stadium -- with the hamstring issue that Arsene Wenger hinted at earlier in the week.

That, of course, opens the door for Carl Jenkinson to start tomorrow, and given that it's a three-week injury, Jenks is also a safe bet for the match against Norwich on Oct. 19. Look for Sagna to return for the awesome eagle-mascot-and-cheerleaders atmosphere at Crystal Palace on Oct. 26 or the massive match against Liverpool at the Emirates on Nov. 2.
